Eman is a conservative woman who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo while he is playing with two of his children in front of their house.

Eman is a 42 year old woman. She is the mother of two sons and four daughters. Her husband is a guard at a local factory and he earns a low salary. It is not enough to cover the family's costs and to pay for the completion of the home's construction which began ten years ago.

Eman is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the expenses of the construction as well as to improve its condition with things such as: painting, installing tiles, and installing a new ceiling for the house. Taking this loan will create for Eman and her family a better and more comfortable home condition.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
